“Change is carrying out an activity
against the habit of a lifetime.”
- F.M. Alexander
Frederick Mathias Alexander (1869-1955) developed his remarkable technique in response to vocal problems he experienced as an actor. The Alexander Technique, now in practice for over 100 years, serves performers of all sorts; and has been accepted by the scientific community, as well, as an effective method for reducing unnecessary muscular tension, thereby improving coordination and alleviating chronic pain.
